Maps To The Stars
Even though the Cannes Film Festival described David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” as a satire of Hollywood a la Robert Altman’s “The Player,” the filmmaker has a less ironic view of the material. “This is not a satire, I’m really just observing,” Cronenberg told Total Film recently. “I feel like a scientist or a researcher. That's the most honest, neutral way of looking at things. I'm not angry at Hollywood. I don't have a statement to make about Hollywood."

"There were a couple of Hollywood producers, and one of them said, 'I could not do this movie, because I could not do that to this business that has been so good to me,' " David Cronenberg said about "Maps To The Stars" at the Provincetown Film Festival.

Maps To The Stars
When you’re a director like David Cronenberg at the Cannes Film Festival, and you're movie stars actors such as John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, and Mia Wasikowska, it’s only natural to have a lot of attention get thrown your way. At the press conference for Cronenberg’s latest film “Maps to the Stars,” a movie that’s about the fear, desperation, and greed that runs rampant in Hollywood, the cast receives the same type of attention that the movie’s central characters are so desperate to obtain.

Tracks
“Tracks” has been a long time coming. Ever since Robyn Davidson wrote her 1979 memoir of her 1700-mile, eight-month trek across the Australian outback from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean, and the book became an award-winning best-seller around the world, Hollywood has been sniffing around it. Multiple attempts to mount an adaptation have been made—Julia Roberts was attached to a version for much of the 1990s—but it finally took the producers of “The King’s Speech” and the oft-undervalued New York-born, Australian-based director John Curran (“We Don’t Live Here Anymore,” “The Painted Veil”) to get it made. And for many, it’ll have been worth the wait: it’s a very handsome film with a terrific central performance, even if it’s not quite an unqualified triumph.

Maps To The Stars
Real talk: it's been quite a while since David Cronenberg made something truly satisfying. "Cosmopolis" has a few defenders, "A Dangerous Method" not so much, and while there's stuff to like in "Spider," "A History Of Violence" and "Eastern Promises," all felt compromised to some degree or other. Indeed, the truly unfiltered Cronenberg picture, one where bits fall off people or people try to have sex with orifices not traditionally used for any sexual act, seems like something of a distant memory at this point.

Maps To The Stars
Yes, Cannes is next week and there are a lot of films playing, but it seems there are only two movies playing: "The Rover" and "Maps To The Stars." It seems every day comes another peek at one of those films, and today is no different, with David Cronenberg's film getting yet another trailer.

Maps To The Stars
Robert Pattinson must be feeling pretty damn good one week before the Cannes Film Festival. He's rolling into the south of France with two highly anticipated films to promote—David Michôd's "The Rover" and David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars." You can bet there will be lots from both movies over the next seven days, but it's the latter that's showing off its stuff first.

Maps To The Stars
While most films headed to Cannes are keeping a tight seal until the lights go down and the projector goes on, that's not the case for David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars." That may be due for the fact that the film is opening in a handful of overseas territories this summer, so regardless of the festival, they need to start advertising. And it could be just because the director doesn't really care. Either way, more images from the movie are here.

Map To The Stars
Yesterday, we got our first taste of David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars," with what was essentially a post-production reel. And is generally the case, that kind of footage isn't always the best representation of the tone and style of the finished product. Well, this morning brings with it another look at Cronenberg's film with another trailer, one boasting lots of new footage and a distinctly different vibe.

Maps To The Stars
David Cronenberg is back, and this time he's taking on his most terrifying, mind-altering subject yet: Hollywood families. Yep, the filmmaker who has spent a career shaking us up with various types of body horror, is continuing his exploration into the psyche, following up the Freudian "A Dangerous Method," and the chatty "Cosmopolis" with "Maps To The Stars."
